Kohler K241 Head Bolt torque?

Postby ka9j » Fri Jul 26, 2013 5:44 pm

I'm trying to get a ladie's IH tractor going so she can cut her grass herself, and I need the head bolt torque to continue. It uses a Kohler K241A 10HP engine, and I had to pull the head to free up the exhaust valve. I got it freed up, and temporarily re-installed the old head gasket, and it started and ran good. Now I've got to replace the head gasket and torque it properly. How tight? Are there multiple steps?

Thank You,

Frank
